Indian Flying Fox bats resting

Indian Flying Foxes spent most of the day hanging head down 30 ft. above a busy Colombo street on October 12 and 13. In mid-afternoon they began flying off one at a time in different directions, presumably looking for fruit to feed on. I did see one hanging dead between two power lines, apparently victim of a short-circuit zap. Bad choice of a landing spot for a big bat.
